Mandatory E-filing of IRS forms for Tax Preparers

Posted on February 13, 2011 at 7:02 AM

Here's a quick entry to share information with other U.S. tax preparers - persons who are doing business as professional preparers of tax forms -  who prepare Internal Revenue Service forms for others.  Alright, you know who you are. 

 

Mandatory e-filing of IRS forms isn't just coming.  It's here!  Starting this year, 2011, tax preparers who expect to prepare 100 or more returns for clients must e-file.  Beginning in 2012, tax preparers who expect to prepare as few as 10 returns for clients must e-file.

 

The IRS link to the announcement is shown here: http://www.irs.gov/taxpros/providers/article/0,,id=223832,00.html .

 

To e-file, a preparer must "create an e-filing account."  This process starts here:
